Free Application Lets Music Lovers Control Leading Multi-Room Music System from Their iPhone

Sonos, Inc., the leading developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the home, today introduced the Sonos Controller for iPhone™ as a free download on the iPhone App Store. Music lovers with an iPhone 3G, iPhone or iPod touch can now control the award-winning Sonos Multi-Room Music System all from their favorite portable device.

Sonos wirelessly plays all the music you want, all over your house, providing an unparalleled multi-room music experience. With Sonos ZonePlayers™ connected wirelessly in the rooms of your choice and a Sonos Controller for iPhone in hand, you can find and play the music you want with ease. Simply pick a room, pick a song and hit play. Play the same song in every room in perfect synchronization, or play different songs in every room.

By combining Sonos’ industry-leading multi-room control user interface with the iPhone’s large display and touch-screen technology, the Sonos Controller for iPhone lets you control the entire Sonos system and a world of music at the touch of a finger. The Sonos user experience allows you to quickly link and unlink rooms, without interrupting music playback. Select, Play, Pause, and Skip music in any room. Search for your favorite artists and songs by typing on the touch screen. Browse your collection by pointing and flicking. Change the volume in a single room, or in all your rooms at once, all from the Sonos Controller for iPhone.

The Sonos Controller for iPhone is the only iPhone Controller app that provides multi-room music control for the entire house and direct access to an infinite world of music including, Napster, Pandora, Rhapsody, SIRIUS Internet Radio, 15,000 plus radio stations, shows and more. Plus, the Sonos Controller for iPhone gives music lovers control over their entire music collection* located on any computer on their home network, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive and even an Apple Time Capsule. And, Sonos is the only multi-room music system that doesn’t require you to have your computer on or a piece of server software on the network to play music all over the home — just walk into your house, reach into your pocket, grab your iPhone, and turn on the music.

“The Sonos Controller for iPhone is another example of Sonos offering features and applications that make the system better, at no cost to our current or future customers,” said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos, Inc. “Today’s announcement enables all of our customers to use a great personal product from Apple to control the world’s best multi-room music system.”

Sonos was the first multi-room music system to deliver wireless handheld control and today offers more ways to control music throughout the home than any other multi-room product on the market–the handheld Sonos Controller CR100, Sonos Desktop Controller for PC and Mac and now the Sonos Controller for iPhone. You can mix and match Controllers for the ultimate in convenience and control.

The Sonos Controller for iPhone requires an iPhone or iPod touch and at least one Sonos ZonePlayer to operate. The Sonos Controller for iPhone utilizes your existing home WiFi network to communicate to the Sonos Multi-Room Music System. iPhone, iPod touch, and Sonos ZonePlayers are sold separately. The Sonos Controller for iPhone is currently available in English only. Additional requirements include Sonos 2.7 System Software and iPhone 2.0 Software. The Sonos Controller for iPhone is compatible with all generations of Sonos hardware.

In conjunction with the new Sonos Controller for iPhone, today Sonos introduced Sonos Software 2.7. The new feature update, which is free to all Sonos customers, includes brand new support for a suite of music content including free access to more than 15,000 radio stations and podcasts from around the world, and Pandora.

Sonos is the first wireless, multi-room music system that lets you play all the music you want, all over your house — and control it all from the palm of your hand. To learn more about Sonos, to place an order or to locate an authorized Sonos dealer, please visit or call 877.80.SONOS.
